A surprise, belated but much appreciated review from GQ's SA edition this month:


"If Sheryl Crow were a South African man, she would probably want to sound like John Ellis. Surprising and beautifully sentimental, 'Rural' addresses real issues without preaching or losing sight of the music. Music these days is often too concerned with image; so much so that even heartfelt songs get lost under a deluge of substandard lyrics. 'Rural' is honest, earthy and full of texture. Ellis's vocals perfectly top off excellent compositions. [IPOD READY:] 'Rights All Wrong' sets the record straight, while 'Come Home' takes us back to the heart of what it means to be human. " [5 stars]
